Digestives biscuits are a classic British recipe, perfect to dunk into afternoon tea. They were first made to aid digestion as they contain baking soda which neutralises acids, hence the name.
Most brands you find in store at your local store contain unnecessary saturated fats, mostly from butter and palm oil, and refined white sugar. We will instead show you how to make an healthier variation that will give us vegan, dairy-free, sugar-free and gluten-free digestive biscuits. A lot of "free" right? Our recipe is remarkably diet-friendly!
How did we do this? Our biscuits are prepared with rolled oat, nuts, and fruit, all nutritious ingredients which provide lots of fibres, healthy unsaturated fats, vitamins, and minerals.
Specifically, we have:
Used a homemade gluten-free flour, made from ground rolled oat and mixed nuts.
Replaced white sugar with applesauce which is made from cooked apple and is naturally sweet.
Replaced eggs with Flaxseeds (flax-egg), which are a good source of omega-3 and help make the recipe vegan.
That's it! Follow our simple steps below and you will crunching these goodies in no time. Once cooked, you can store them in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
